Hello! :)

Postby xMissMarmaladex » Wed Aug 10, 2011 8:34 pm

Hi guys! My name is Emma and I have dyspraxia. I'm fifteen years old and I was diagnosed with dyspraxia when I was fourteen so I haven't known of my condition for long. I live in Scotland with my mum and my eighteen year old sister. I like drawing, watching movies, playing video games, reading and listening to music. I found this website when reading Victoria Biggs' book "Caged in Chaos: A Dyspraxic Guide to Breaking Free" and I thought I'd see if I could get a better understanding of my condition from other sufferers point of view and also see if I could make some friends. :)

That's all I can think of saying right now. :?

Thank you Remus! I'm also mild dyspraxic and I mostly have trouble with keeping track of time and remembering things.
You have four cats? Wow, is it hard looking after them all? I only have two gold fish. :lol:

My memory is awful and as for my time management, I might as well be on a different time to everyone else! :P

Oh no, they take care of themselves. Just roam in and out whenever they like. I have got two goldfish too.

Another Emma! I think we have about five DT Emmas now. Oh well, you can't have too much of a good thing. :P

I am Vicky. I'm glad you found your way to us. As you have read my book, you already know my intro, but I will update it a bit as I've aged since the book came out. ;) I studied English at university and then moved in with Danni (another DT user) as she was very ill at the time and needed someone to help keep her out of hospital. Together we got an elderly rescue cat called Giles. He only has one eye now and he can't see much with the one he is got, but he is very sweet. I love cats and I wish I had four of them! I'm playing with the idea of doing some voluntary work in a cattery when I start my MA in September.

In addition to the cat, I also acquired a cello, which I'm learning how to play slowly but quite successfully. :P
